Andy Murray still expecting Rosmalen return after almost year out of tennis

May 21, 2018

Andy Murray is still planning on returning to competitive action three weeks before the start of Wimbledon.

 

The former world No 1 has not played competitively since losing his Wimbledon quarter-final to America's Sam Querrey almost 12 months ago.

 

Murray underwent surgery in January after admitting defeat in his hope that he could rehab from a long-term hip issue without going under the knife.

 

He returned to training in March but opted not to play on clay and instead return when the grass court season gets underway.

 

Murray had also been a possible for a Challenger Tour event in Loughborough this week but did not apply for a wildcard entry into the tournament.

 

He is now expected to play in the Netherlands event which gets underway on June 11, with Wimbledon starting on Monday July 2.

On Monday, Murray confirmed his entry into the world of tennis technology as part of the team behind Deuce, an app which will launch fully just before Wimbledon.

 

Deuce plans to make tennis accessible and affordable for everyone, making it easier to book fun-led coaching, access courts and find partners or opponents of a similar level.

 

Murray said: "There are lots of schemes out there for encouraging participation but this is the first time I've backed something like this.

 

"Tennis is such a great sport with so many benefits - physical, mental and social, but we simply don't have enough people playing in this country.

 

We need to fill empty courts with people playing more often and Deuce uses today's technology to do this in a simple, welcoming and affordable way."
